Sacramento County’s health is contingent upon the fair and equitable distribution of resources and education to its young people. As Nelson Mandela aptly noted, “Children are our greatest treasure. They are our future.”
Exacerbated by a pandemic, it’s becoming increasingly difficult to account for all the pressure points in Sacramento’s education system. During the past year alone, Sacramento students and families confronted a strike by teachers and staff, reports of race-related incidents and more.
As CapRadio and The Sacramento Observer education reporter covering K-12 schools, I will focus on holding schools and districts in Sacramento County accountable to their communities, while ensuring that minority voices are amplified. As an immigrant, I know that the education system can be arduous to navigate. My work will enable you to get equitable services for your children. Above all, I will be sure to examine the intersections of race, equity and health in education.
What’s happening at the schools near you? Heard a parent complaining or a student succeeding? I want to hear about it!
